In 1847 the Cayuga Patriot combined with the Tocsin under the name of the Cayuga New Era, thus founded by Merritt Stone & Co. with Thomas Y. Howe, Jr. as editor. These publishers were succeeded by Stone, Hawes & Co., later Finn and Hallett, and finally William L. Finn, who discontinued the publication in 1857. For more information on how these highly partisan newspapers consolidated the power of Democratic-Republicans like Enos T Throop and Martin Van Buren, see "The Cayuga Patriot" elsewhere in this exhibit.
